Testing Incident Logs
Irregularities- logged and reported to the district within 24 hours via the Test Security Incident Log
Breach- requires immediate notification/escalation by telephone to the state level assessment director by the DA or DC.
"The rule of thumb is that anything that disrupts the flow of the testing process should be logged, but I think you need to consider the extent of the disruption and when it occurs in the testing process"
I would say that moving a student because a computer is not working properly does not need to be included on the testing incident logs, unless it completely disrupts the student testing. If it happens before the students actually begin testing, it would not need to be recorded.
Text to Speech Clarification
Students with a need can have the items read to them, but not the stimuli (passages).
Please thank your special education teachers for completing the accommodations Excel sheets. I was able to upload all sheet and accommodations for the entire district in 15 minutes. :)
Thank you for all the work you put into making testing successful in your schools!
I will be visiting schools at least once during the testing window to see how things are going :)
